Prostitution has been legal in Rhode Island for more than a decade; Liam Mulligan, an old-school investigative reporter at dying Providence newspaper, suspects the governor has been taking payoffs to keep it that way. But this isn't the only story making headlines...a child's severed arm is discovered in a pile of garbage at a pig farm. Then the body of an internet pornographer is found sprawled on the rocks at the base of Newport's famous Cliff Walk.

At first, the killings seem random, but as Mulligan keeps digging into the state's thriving sex business, strange connections emerge. Promised free sex with hookers if he minds his own business―and a beating if he doesn't―Mulligan enlists Thanks-Dad, the newspaper publisher's son, and Attila the Nun, the state's colorful Attorney General, in his quest for the truth. What Mulligan learns will lead him to question his beliefs about sexual morality, shake his tenuous religious faith, and leave him wondering who his real friends are.

Cliff Walk is at once a hard-boiled mystery and an exploration of sex and religion in the age of pornography. Written with the unique and powerful voice that won DeSilva an Edgar Award for Best First Novel, Cliff Walk lifts Mulligan into the pantheon of great suspense heroes and is a giant leap for the career of Bruce DeSilva.

From the Back Cover:

Cliff Walk, Bruce DeSilva's sequel to his Edgar Award-winning first novel, is even better--both a riveting hard-boiled murder mystery and a serious look at the thriving sex trade in the tiny state of Rhode Island. The story is by turns chilling and hilarious, the characters and sense of place are authentic, and the writing displays a master's understanding of the genre. -- David Morrell, New York Times best-selling author of Shimmer and the creator of Rambo.

From the Inside Flap:

"DeSilva knows his crooks, his snobs, and his working joes, knows what they do and how they talk about it. He also knows the newspaper business in all its sunset glory, and he's intimately acquainted with the nets of power, crime, and money woven into the fabric of Rhode Island. This is a series I'll be following." --S.J. Rozan, award-winning author of Ghost Hero.
